Stephanie A.


My daughter Stephanie has 5 life-threatening conditions (including transplant) and autism just to keep it interesting. (Sepsis and Organ Transplants) She has had 3 hospitalizations due to sepsis, most recently this year Thanksgiving weekend. The first time I think she just relapsed and 3 days later we were back in the ER and the local hospital sent her to the transplant clinic. This time we told them that the Zosyn they had her on last time didn’t work, and the transplant clinic put her on Meropenum. The last time we mentioned this and they immediately put her on Meropenum and didn’t transfer her-we were heard-and so far so good.
